haha nice one, i think they remind me of the anthems kinda, a little less underfoot obviously and no butter zone but the have a nice poppy flex and real solid landing zone. but again depends on what type of a skier you are.
this year the LT was a pretty stiff ski.
i dont know if your refering to the red and white LTs from last year, that ski is a bit softer, next years will be simalar in softness like the one from last year again.
ive never had edge cracking problems with any of my 9s, even with how hard i ski mine. they hold up real nice.
